I need your vote, please!

Voting is in progress

I've entered another quilt of mine into the Quilter's Gallery's Weekly Themed Quilt Contest.  This week's contest is all about "Trees, Leaves and Flowers". Go here and take a look.

"Marianne's Garden"

It is one of my all time favorite quilts and I'm always happy to see it again when I go back to Switzerland where it is living with my dear friend Marianne. I'm still planning to make another one, one day!

Two things worried me about this block! One was that the material was very precious,so it was scary to cut and the second was that I am so old now.....oh to be 40!!!
I loved the material such soft colours,they would work well in my bedroom!.
I went to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham last week ,next year I will stay, as a day just wasn't long enough to see everything and to shop!! As always with shows you return home inspired!  I was very restrained on the shopping side as I must use the stash..but came away with gold foil,markal paint sticks, titanium needles and solufleece  ,all new to me but I am going to have a play and probably end up with a few more UFOs!!

Really enjoying the Bee!

August block

Ladies, please don't think I have forgotten that it is my turn this month!  I will be posting my fabric out soon.  I have been on holiday this week and I  hadn't realised that it would be August during my leave.  I hope you all enjoy the fabric that I have chosen.  This quilt will be very special to me, as I bought the fabric with a voucher I was given by the ladies I sew with for my 40th Birthday last year, and now I am using these fabrics for my Quilting Bee quilt.

Lucy, I will return your blocks in with my package to you. Happy sewing

Lucy's blocks underway - at last.

I'm enjoying playing with Lucy's fabrics with a couple of mine added. Just as well I don't need to allow postage time! Joanne.
